COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on communities throughout Canada and Muskoka is no exception. As we begin to slowly emerge with new and important measures in place to remain safe, Muskoka is also turning it's attention to what we can do to ensure our economy rebounds to pre-covid levels of activity. It is because of these impacts, the District Municipality of Muskoka in cooperation with Area Municipal Economic Development Leads , Chambers of Commerce, Muskoka Parry Sound MP and MPP Offices, Muskoka Tourism Agencies and the Federation of Ontario Cottagers' Associations, the Muskoka Economic Recovery Task Force has been launched.

The goal of the Task Force is to minimize the effects of the pandemic on businesses across Muskoka and respond by undertaking strategic actions that enable recovery while ensuring strong economic outcomes both during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic,” said District Chair and Task Force Chair John Klinck. “Where available, the Task Force will also seek, leverage, and advocate for Provincial and Federal government funding to support Muskoka-based businesses.”
